Former Captain Along Side With The New Captain For RPS IPL-10 | What A Moment For Dhoni & Smith

In IPL 2017, with a slight alteration in the franchise name and a change in captaincy, Rising Pune Supergiant have taken a fresh step, with a new captain for the team new captain Steven Smith.
Selection of Steve Smith as a captain over former Indian skipper MS Dhoni was the first controversy of IPL season 10. And one of the much talk was Will the young captain be successful in filling Dhoni’s shoes? The newly-appointed captain of Rising Pune Supergiant Steve Smith knows that he has big shoes to fill, not only in terms of replacing a legendary captain but also in improving his side’s fate this year, compared to last year they were at the bottom.


The first match of RPS against MI under the captaincy of Smith was like a roller coster till the end of the game, And the captain Smith has done his part by taking it till the last over and getting the first win for their team and not to forget the formar captain MS Dhoni along his side till the end. Two massive sixes in the final over from Pollard just finished the game for RPS and Smith remains unbeaten on 84 and almost single-handedly won the game in his maiden stint as skipper.
It was a Brilliant start for RPS, their first win at home. Ajinkya Rahane did start with some big shots and took the game half way by scoring 60 runs out of 34 balls with a great strike rate, Ben Stokes pull the game for a short period and then it was all about the former captain MS Dhoni and the new captain Steve Smith who finish the game together.

Smith’s father was quoted as saying, “It is a great privilege to be asked to captain any side. The Supergiant franchise has a number of good international and Indian players and it would be very exciting to have the opportunity to lead them.”
“The decision to replace MS Dhoni with Steven is one made by the franchise owners and not a decision on which I should comment.”
He also went on by saying how Smith can relay on MS Dhoni for any advice, “MS Dhoni has a vast wealth of experience in the IPL and international cricket. I am sure he will be one of the senior players on whom Steven will rely for tactical input throughout the game.”

It was a Brilliant start for RPS, their first win at home, Wish they continue their journey with this positive start this season.
